Do I really believe that God loves me and has a plan for me? Most would probably answer in the affirmative. Let’s separate the two thoughts and see what answers we find.
How do we know God loves us? God’s Word is our source for this answer. His Word declares in Jeremiah 31:3, “I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to Myself.” Now if God says it, that settles it. He does not say what He does not mean and He does not go back on His Word.
